Aetiological factors of the myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are largely unknown, with the exception of alkylating agents, ionizing radiation and benzene. Some other risk factors have been suggested by the few epidemiological studies reported (solvents, ammonia, exhaust gases, metals, pesticides, alcohol). We performed a case-control study to assess the(More)
This report covers part of the assessment of a site in northern France polluted by industrial metal emissions. Our objectives were to assess the cadmium burden in children aged 8 to 11 years and look for factors that affected it. A cross-sectional population-based study took place in 1996-1997 and included 400 children (200 in the metal-polluted area). The(More)
BACKGROUND This study is part of the assessment of a site in northern France polluted by lead from industrial emissions. Our objectives were to look for the factors that influence lead burden in children aged 8-11 years. METHODS A cross-sectional population-based study took place in 1996-97 and included 400 children (200 of whom lived on the(More)
Leaded-gasoline is probably the primary source of lead (Pb) exposure in Dakar (Senegal). The present cross-sectional study was undertaken to investigate the levels of Pb in Senegalese children and to present helpful data on the relationship between Pb levels and changes in biological markers of heme biosynthesis and oxidative stress. A total of 330(More)
A case-control study was conducted in France to examine occupational risk factors for sinonasal cancer; 207 cases and 409 controls were included in the study. Detailed information was collected on occupational history and other potential risk factors for nasal cancer. Results are presented for three histologic types: adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma,(More)
Eleven healthy volunteers (six men, five women) and twelve cancer patients (six men, six women) were given single oral doses (2.5 mg/kg body weight) of levamisole, an immunostimulant agent. In a second experiment eleven healthy et volunteers (six men, five women) and twelve cancer patients (six men, six women) were given single oral doses (5 mg/kg body(More)
Over the past few years, many studies, including one on our previous work, have examined the chronic effects of fumes from stainless steel (SS) welding on the health of welders. These chronic effects have been related to concentrations of chromium and nickel in SS welding fumes. The present study examined the acute respiratory effects of welding fumes in(More)
The aim of the study was to determine the exposure levels of workers to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons on gasworks sites by the measurement of urinary 1-hydroxypyrene. Start-shift and end-shift urine samples were taken every day during an entire week (Monday to Friday), once in November and a second time in June. Four groups of workers were selected(More)
This study aimed to investigate the pulmonary effects of methylmethacrylate (MMA) in a group of occupationally exposed workers. In the exposed group 20% had chronic cough compared with 1% in controls. Spirometric values at the beginning of the workshift were similar in both groups, but a mild airways obstruction appeared during the workshift. The maximum(More)
Cadmium exposure is known to induce hypertension, but development of hypertension is not universal in exposed animals. However, the cellular uptake of cadmium could also exert renal cytotoxic effects which have been, until now, essentially only studied at the proximal tubule level. Kallikrein is an enzyme synthetized in renal cortex and excreted in the(More)
